Sumpter, a small town buried deep in the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon, stands as a monument to times gone by.  Gold mining dominates the history and landscape of the Sumpter Valley, with the dredge remaining as the centerpiece to that era.

Visit Sumpter to experience the history, mountains, ghost towns and trails for yourself.   But be careful!  If you catch the spirit of freedom and adventure once embodied in the rugged miners and toughened loggers of old, you will want to create a few adventures (and make a few memories) of your own.
